12 Good semigroups

We will only cover here good semigroups of N^2.

A good semigroup S is a submonoid of N^2, with the following properties.

(G1) It is closed under infimums (minimum componentwise).

(G2) if a, b ∈ M and a_i = b_i for some i ∈ {1, 2}, then there exists c ∈ M such that c_i > a_i = b_i and c_j = min{a_j,b_j}, with j∈{1,2}∖ {i}.

(G3) there exists C∈N^n such that C+N^n⊆ S.

Value semigroups of algebroid branches are good semigroups, but there are good semigroups that are not of this form. Since good semigroups are closed under infimums, if C_1 and C_2 fulfill C_i+N^n⊆ S, then C_1∧ C_2+N^n⊆ S. So there is a minimum C fulfilling C+N^n⊆ S, which is called the conductor of S.

The contents of this chapter are described in [DGSM16].
